To prepare a student to independently handle and present all aspects of an architectural design:
from its evolution to final solution in totality;
To understand the importance of the evolutionary stages of a design process and various
techniques required for a successful presentation of an architectural design;
To develop in students the ability to handle specific aspects of design relevant to the topic.

Thesis Programme:
The multiple challenges of built environment offer unlimited scope for the choice of an
architectural design thesis. The selection of the thesis subject may result either from issue/s
involved, or from the challenges of design, or the inherent and acquired aptitude of a student,
which he/she wishes to perfect and present. The variety of the intentions give students the choice
to select the topic of the thesis from a purely hypothetical to a live programme, as long as the
topic can result in tangible built environment solution. Consequently, the size of the project has
no relevance in the selection of the topic; the riding clause being the topics relevance to serve the
laid down specific objectives inherent in the philosophy of the institution.
For reasons of maintenance of uniformity in results and standards, the thesis presentation shall be
in two distinct compartments: a report comprising of all the preliminary studies required for the
thesis topic, and the final design solution.
The Thesis report shall consist of all relevant contextual studies: of user, place and time to enable
the formulation of design criteria.
The design solution shall be in the form of sheets and models of the concept and design and shall
further include the presentation of at least one specific aspect relevant to the selected topic in
complete detail.
The report, in triplicate, shall be submitted in bound form together with prints/photographs of all
the drawings and model/s.
